Your ROUTER or MODEM needs to connect through PPPoE. Your Laptop obtains an IP address through DHCP. You can set a static IP (on your own local network), but these things are not related.

You need to log into your router/modem and set it with your PPPoE settings. Your laptop is fine on DHCP, unless you plan to use it as a server...
